Looking to purchase a Yamaha this year?
According to Cars.USNews.com
“In the off-roading world of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and utility task vehicles (UTVs), Yamaha is one of the biggest names in the business. Yamaha was an early player in the ATV game. In 1980, during the three-wheeler era, Yamaha released its first ATV in the United States, the Tri-Moto. In 1985, Yamaha released the YFM200 Moto-4, keeping pace with the industry trend toward four wheels.
“They followed these models up with a series of firsts in the industry, including the first ATV with a cargo bed and the first ATV with electronic power steering. For 2004, Yamaha introduced its first UTV, the Rhino.
Types of Yamaha ATVs and UTVs
“Yamaha breaks its ATVs into two broad categories: sport and utility. The Raptor series comes in several performance-oriented configurations, with the YFZ series topping the sport range. The Kodiak and Grizzly models can bear any tough task you throw at them, be it work or play. There’s also a sporty-looking Raptor 90 and YFZ50 for young riders.
“Yamaha’s UTV (or SXS, for side-by-side) vehicles come in three basic flavors, with many available customizations. YXZ sport models are built for speed, Wolverine recreational ATVs are made for trails, and Viking utility vehicles have plenty of room for crews and cargo.
Yamaha ATVs and UTVs Prices
“The least expensive Yamaha ATVs are also the smallest, with kid-friendly models of the Raptor, YFZ, and Grizzly starting at $2,199. Raptor models range from $3,099 to $9,399, while YFZ models start at $9,199. Prices for the Kodiak and Grizzly utility ATVs start at $6,199 and go up to $10,999 before adding any further options or packages.
“Yamaha utility side-by-sides in the Viking series have starting prices between $11,999 and $15,699. Wolverine recreational UTVs start at $14,499 and have a top end of $25,299. The performance-oriented YXZ models have a floor of $18,999, and their starting prices go up to $21,799.
Yamaha ATVs and UTVs Lineup
“With decades of history behind its ATVs, Yamaha has developed a full range of ATVs for most uses, from chores to trails. The Raptor series of sports ATVs boasts one of the best-selling models in the segment and several podium finishes in off-road racing. The Grizzly and Kodiak models are well-rounded and customizable, with trims for chores or trails – or both.
“Fans of side-by-sides have plenty of choices from Yamaha. The YXZ series is ready for racing, while the Wolverine comes in a variety of sizes for tight trails or bringing a few friends along on your off-road adventure. The Viking series is built for work with a side of play, with editions made for ranch work and carrying the whole crew…”
